Just like the title says, is this particular piece just a "clip" that holds the whole assembly together (please see pic) below? I'm looking to purchase one soon since mine is broken. Thanks in advance.

The purpose of the piece is to aid in automated assembly.

The pick-and-place machine that installs it uses a manipulator arm with a small suction cup to pick up the part. It works well enough with IC's and other chips, but not a large socket like that with a bunch of holes in it.

Even a manual installer would use it with a vacuum pen...a small tool used to pick up parts for installation.
It's definitely a throw-away if not needed.
